How to Open a DMG File on a Mac
You’ve probably noticed that your Mac won’t open a .dmg file. This is because this file type isn’t compatible with the official Apple software. However, you can restore the file’s association with your system by manually editing the Windows Registry and HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT keys. To do this, right-click the DMG file and select “Get information”. Then, expand the “Open with” box and choose DiskImageMounter. Click the Continue button after selecting the appropriate application.
Why Need to Open a DMG File on Your Mac
A DMG file can be opened in Windows File Explorer. A DMG file is a disk image that can be opened in any computer, including Mac OS. Despite its name, a DMG file can cause a variety of problems for Mac users. It can be infected with malware and viruses, which means that the DMG file reading utility won’t be able to detect it correctly. To fix this problem, you must get a clean version of the image files that you want to open.
To open a DMG file on a Mac, first install 7-Zip. It will not be part of your system but will automatically open a DMG file. The only limitation to this software is that it can’t open encrypted files or larger files. You can only open up to five DMG files with this program. But it’s well worth it. When you’re finished with installing the software, you can start opening your DMG files.
